5 Matching questions

  1. Mercury Barometer
  2. air pressure
  3. warm front
  4. Occluded Front
  5. Convection Current
  1. a the weight of the air above an object
  2. b a front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow
  3. c the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another
  4. d An instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.
  5. e moving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an instrument that measures wind speed
  2. an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
  3. a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  4. forms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up
  5. an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing

5 True/False questions

  1. aneroid barometeran instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.


  2. Jet Streama line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure


  3. Coriolis EffectThe way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.


  4. pressure gradient forceDrives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.


  5. FrontArea of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising
